At the heart of our middle school program, is our desire for students to develop a strong biblical foundation. Every class connects concepts to biblical truths through the curriculum and class discussion. Students also build a strong foundation through daily Bible classes. Dynamic discussions and interactive lessons are designed to relate to issues and ideas we know middle school-aged kids are thinking about. Students learn biblical truths and memorize scripture in order to develop a solid biblical worldview that can help them strengthen their biblical foundation as they move through middle school and eventually into high school. Classes in 7th and 8th grade are divided by gender to allow for deeper, more challenging discussion.
Students participate in weekly chapel services, usually in combination with the high school. Chapel is valuable to all of CMS not just for the corporate worship aspect, but also for the unity of the body that is experienced weekly as middle schoolers, high schoolers, faculty, and staff, gather together in worship. Parents are welcome to join us each week as well!
